One of the most testing tasks of any Florida nursing home attorney is revealing
the details of a case with family members.
Consider nursing home abuse cases involving allegations of unreasonable
restraint. This is a situation in which a caregiver restricts or restrains
an elderly resident and causes harm. For instance, a nurse might strap
a patient into his bed for hours or days at a time. The consequences can
be grisly: bruises, contusions, bed sores that metastasize intolife-threatening
infections, psychological damage, immune system problems and worse.
How should a West Palm Beach nursing home lawyer discuss the ravages of
nursing home abuse with clients? On the one hand, it’s important
for clients to deal with reality—to know exactly what happened to
their loved ones and why. On other hand, the situation can be delicate.
How do you respect and dignify someone who has been through so much hardship?
How do you convey the appropriate information, respectfully, to the victim's family?
The Power of Effective Communication
The quality of communication you have with your West Palm Beach Florida
nursing home attorney can impact your case—both the actual quantitative
results that you get (in terms of damages and “justice done”)
and the qualitative results (e.g. how you feel about the case, how you
feel about the punishments doled out, etc.).
